I could use these

Posted by seoulfully on February 23rd, 2008

Though whenever I wear French cuffs (other than with a suit), I just toss the cufflinks on one side, and don’t close the cuff.  I have no idea why.

Emergency cufflinks.

Space Kimchi

Posted by seoulfully on February 22nd, 2008

I totally understand the need for kimchi.  I used to think my dad was weird for wanting to eat kimchi as soon as we’d get home from a non-Korean restaurant.  But I get older and I understand it more and more.   I was born and raised in the US, but I understand.

If only these were for sale.  And not oriented toward cats.  Monty would have some of these.

This is cool.  I’m a geek, so what?  I remember an MTV cribs, with Craig David I believe, where LEDs were in the walls or something and the dude could change the colors or flashy or whatever of his walls and whatnot.  It was awesome.

If/when I get a house, call me a snob, I’d interested in their “Bespoke Fireplaces”.

Interesting (kind of) look at food

Be Cool

Be a cool hipster…. get a graphic tee at Rumplo.

You can search and whatnot.  There are other, probably better, sites, but I found this one this morning so here it is.  Despite this excellent interview of John Gruber (of Daring Fireball) by Shawn Blanc that, among other things, discusses writing and blogging, I decided to just toss something up this morning without much thought about what it is since I’ve not posted in awhile.

I eat way too much

Tuna Calculator | Environmental Working Group

I eat WAY more than this says I should.  There are some periods I go without tuna, but it’s normally a staple, since I’m WAY lazy and it’s so easy to just pop a can.

Koreaphobia!!!! – “is an expectation of being beaten by Korea” (wiki).

I should add to the wiki page.  “Also refers to Korea’s dominance of crazy fast food.”  (Don’t click this link, it’ll just take you 2 posts down to the Koreans FTW! post, ha).
